Tap at Belmont Station. Pours thick and black with a dark tan head. Very oily. Huge milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla aroma. Smooth thick malt, chewy, with lots of chocolate, coffee bitterness and touches of oak vanilla in the taste. Decadent and enjoyable brew. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a huge, brown and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, sweetness and a strange cross between chill and bell pepper. The mouth-feel is oily. The flavour is sweet with notes of sweet, slightly bitter coffee, dark fruits, light chocolate and the same cross between chill and bell pepper, but without any chili-bite. The finish is dry with a light bitterness. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2011
A-pours a jet black liquid with tons of creamy mocha colored head and lingers for a bit.
S-the nose is roasted coffee, slightly burnt, light notes of ash with some bourbon and wood undertones. dark plums in the back and a little sugary.
T-the taste is more expressive than the nose. roasted malts and dark chocolate with notes of espresso and a faint bourbon and wood flavor underneath. the plums are very faint in the back and it is less so than the nose.
M-fuller body and very creamy on the palate. nicely carbonated with a good slightly dry finish.
D-this beer is very nice, a nice balance or roasted malt flavors and some sweetness in the back. the barrel components are quite light but they are faintly detectable.

11.2oz bottle shared by Carle at De Struise. I was really excited to try this one as it was one of the remaining De Struise beers I haven’t had...A beautiful stout, black with a huge tan head, great retention and lacing. Out of a De Struise glass the head rises about right fingers and last forever...The aroma and taste set this apart and make this beer the best of the Damnation series to date. The aroma has ton of coffee, dark chocolate, smoke, oak, vanilla and a touch of bourbon. There is just so much going on, but in a coherent symphony...The taste is just fantastic. A lot of coffee comes through but it is so creamy and balanced. Not as many flavors show but the coffee with cream is more than enough. The feel is super smooth as well.
This is a beer that should be sought out. Skinnyviking (9550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. Very high an pretty agressive creamy brown creamy and long lasting head. Yummy yoummy. The body is black, really black. Heavy coffee choccolate aroma with notes of toast. Solid coffree flavor with choccolate and a bit of bitterness at the finish. Dry and good. Low carbonation. Long coffee aftertaste. Lovely. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2011

Tap at Lord Hobo - Deep black pour with a thick tight tan head. The nose is a bit heavy and very cocoaish. Lots of light licorice and cocoa notes. Fairly assertive bitterness. A touch of soft licorice and cocoa. Peppery and also a little bit vegetal. It’s kind of odd - lots going on, maybe too much.
